What will I study in a Richmond USMLE course?

As the USMLE is intended to assess your overall ability to use medical knowledge in a clinical environment, the skills tested are broad. There's too much to list here, but to give a small set of examples, some subjects include bodily systems like the Blood & Lymphoreticular System, the Nervous System & Special Senses, and the Cardiovascular System. You'll also be tested on subjects like General Principles of Foundational Science, Behavioral Health, and more. The USMLE is actually three separate sub-tests, which are called Steps. Steps 1 and 2 are usually taken in your second and fourth years of medical school, respectively, while Step 3 is most often taken by those in their first two years of residency. The formats of the three tests differ, and a Richmond USMLE course can help you understand the test, develop test-taking strategies, and hone skills that are relevant to the Step you're preparing for.

No matter which Step you're taking, you'll have to be ready for a long, exhaustive exam. Step 1 of the USMLE is a multiple-choice test that takes seven hours to complete. Step 2 is taken over the course of two days, with the first day, the Clinical Knowledge exam, providing you with eight hours to answer multiple-choice questions. The second day, Clinical Skills, asks you to address the needs of 12 patient cases. Step 3, the final hurdle before you'll earn your medical license, also takes two days to complete. On the first, you'll answer multiple-choice questions for six hours. On the second, you'll answer another four-and-a-half hours' worth of questions, and also have to engage with thirteen computer-based case simulations and respond appropriately. A Richmond USMLE course can assist you in revisiting the material you've learned in medical school as you prepare for one of these Steps, and also develop the test-taking skills you may need when facing an eight-hour day of testing.

How is a Richmond USMLE class formatted?

Should you enroll in a Richmond USMLE class, you'll be able to access an online classroom where you'll be able to see and speak with your instructor and your classmates via a video chat program. This can provide you with the same sort of face-to-face instruction and camaraderie that you'd have in a traditional classroom, but with some additional benefits. Classes are flexible, so even if you've got a busy or unorthodox schedule, we can find something that may suit your lifestyle. You also won't have to worry about fitting an extra commute into your day, and you'll be able to access your class anywhere that you have an internet connection, allowing you to study in a distraction-free environment of your own choosing.

Your instructor can put together lessons to review the topics that the USMLE will test you on, as well as lead the class in group discussions and activities. You'll be able to work through the material with other medical students. Collaborative work has been demonstrated to help students learn new material, as well as retain material in the long term, so by participating in discussions you can be assured that you're strengthening your understanding of medical knowledge that may continue to be useful to you long after you've completed the USMLE. Your classmates may expose you to new perspectives that can make you see familiar subjects in a new light, and when you're covering a section that you're already confident about, you can reinforce your skills by teaching your fellow students. Plus, while class time has many benefits, you'll also be able to reserve one-on-one time with your instructor, so you can get private, expert tutelage on subjects that you're struggling with.
